    Well, we’ve fallen short of that prayer.

    • Yes we have but it is certainly a worthy goal to aspire to and reach for isn’t it? Would that this would be the gold standard and the way we chose EVEN our candidates for office…it would certainly make our field much smaller, but much easier too

    One commenter lamented that we haven’t realized this prayer…no we haven’t but it is certainly a goal worth aspiring to and reaching for isn’t it? Would that this would be the gold standard and the way we chose EVEN our candidates…it would certainly make our field much smaller, but much easier too!
